I am offended that you choose to call Brookville, Kansas a ghost town.....the old grade school is a private residence and has been for years.....there is a city mayor, several active churches a beautiful junior and senior high school with every sport available, there is a Senior Citizen Group that meets for a meal monthly, a Rebeka Lodge for women and a Lyons Club for men...the Lyons club holds a pancake breakfast and soup lunch as fundraisers yearly...also Labor Day weekend at Brookville is full of activities, parade, rodeo, games in the park and a dance in the evening ......A Ghost town, not by a long shot, unless the meaning of ghost town has changed....the residents of Brookville are proud of their town, with new homes built within the last 10 years and older homes kept up......maybe it's time for another visit to Brookville, Kansas
Editor's Response: While we appreciate your position, I would like to point out that we don't call Brookville a "ghost town", we say it is an 'almost' ghost town. From our article, we state "though Brookville continues to support a population of about 250 people, we could find no open businesses other than the post office when we were there in 2009. Today, it has become mostly a bedroom community to Salina commuters. This almost ghost town is well worth a visit to check out its unpaved and dusty streets and lined with sandstone buildings and wooden storefronts that look very much like they did over a century ago. Its beautiful two-story stone school, last used in 1996, continues to stand."

Also, you should understand what some consider to be ghost towns. From our article http://www.legendsofamerica.com/gt-ghosttownethics.html
"Basically, a ghost town is any historical town or site that leaves evidence of a town's previous glory. This could be in many forms -- all businesses closed, municipal services at a minimum, rubble and old nails strewn about, ruins of former buildings, etc. Some places that are categorized as ghost towns; however, still have people living in them and though sometimes they don't want to be called a ghost town, most historians will continue to reference them that way if the reason or purpose for it's original "boom" is gone."
